Started searching the area for dog parks and found a large one at Cabin John. It appears to be maintained well. There are also areas with playground equipment and a train ride for adults and kids.

This is a nice, large park, with good play areas for children and a nice dog park with a section for large dogs, and another for small dogs. The bathroom facilities could be better.
